An MMA event for a special cause will be held this Saturday in Rio de Janeiro. All the proceeds from Shooto Brazil 20 will go to the treatment of former WEC rising star Will Ribeiro, who suffered a debilitating motorcycle accident two years ago, leaving him partially paralyzed and missing a large part of his skull.
Promoter of the event André Pederneiras calls on one and all to show up and enjoy the excitement of the always-entertaining Shooto Brazil event and help change Will’s life for the better, by contributing to his skull-reconstruction operation.
Shooto South America bantamweight champion with a dynamic game Eduardo “Dudu” Dantas headlines the event and hard-hitter with a capoeira background Leandro Batata also features on the card, as well as some must-see little-guy action with Maicon Willian versus Lincoln Sá.
Tickets cost $R 30.00, and can be purchased at the door at Delfim Academy, just around the corner from São Francisco Xavier subway station, or at Upper Academy, a stone’s throw from Flamengo subway stop.
The events starts at 6pm.
